Hope to see you at Wise Traditions!

by Chris Masterjohn, PhD

The 13th annual Wise Traditions is being held in Santa Clara, California in just two weeks! I'll be giving two talks. The first will be on the importance of meat, organs, fat-soluble vitamins, bones, and skin for mental health. The second will be on nutritional adjuncts to the fat-soluble vitamins, things link zinc, magnesium, and carbon dioxide. Other names familiar in the blogosphere may include Chris Kresser, who will be speaking on the gut-brain axis, Esther Gokhale, who will be speaking and leading a workshop on "primal posture," Ann Marie Michaels on social media, Anore Jones on native Alaskan foods, Sandor Katz on fermentation, and many others.

The WAPF site is finally back up, and if you have any trouble with it you should be able to fix that by clearing your browser cache. You can find a description of the presentations here and the schedule here, and you can register here or here.

Having Sex Protects Against Vitamin D Toxicity

by Chris Masterjohn, PhD

My focus for the last six years or so on the need to balance vitamin D with vitamins A and K2 has turned out to be a rather prudish solution to the soft tissue calcification that can often be caused by vitamin D. While a concoction of A and K may hold you up on the streets, the funner and more exciting solution to vitamin D toxicity lies between the sheets.

My Interview on Faith, Science, and Nutrition With Fr. Anthony Perkins of Orthoanalytika

by Chris Masterjohn, PhD

Well hello everyone! 

A few weeks ago, Fr. Anthony Perkins, an Orthodox Christian priest who's into paleo, invited me to be a guest on his podcast. I had never heard of him, but I soon saw that he'd been interviewed on "Ask Bryan" Davis's podcast show, Doc Fermento Discovers the World, where I've been interviewed before as well. I listened to the show and he sounded pretty legit so I accepted. Turns out he's a great conversation partner.
